Women Bring All Voters Into The World tea towel

This tea towel is based on a US poster from the beginning of the 20th century making a stark and powerful argument for women's votes. The argument may appear to us less relevant these days as we can view women as human beings in their own right, but the reality of their maternity was used as a central argument in the campaign at the time. Women eventually gained the vote in the US in 1920, two years after the UK.

It was designed by James Montgomery Flagg (1877-1960). Flagg seemed happy to work for anyone who could pay - he also designed the Uncle Sam World War I recruitment poster "I want YOU for U.S army", based on the corresponding Lord Kitchener poster in the UK!

 
Specifications: Half Panama unbleached cotton (heavy weight, textured finish). Stitched on all four sides. Includes hanging loop. Measures approximately 48cm x 70cm. Machine wash at 40 degrees max. We recommend that before you use your tea towel for the first time you wash it at least once to soften up the material and make it more absorbent for drying dishes. Please note size can vary slightly.
